About

Team

We (Tobias Ammann and Marc Rütsche) are developing a business model that gives people a perspective through language learning and teaching. Building loquilove opens up many new opportunities for loquilove community members and others. We are focusing on three opportunities: First, to gain new perspectives through language skills at very reasonable prices (or even for free), secondly, to create jobs and thirdly, to support education projects. For this purpose we build loquilove.

Before loquilove we both worked for consulting firms where we have led numerous projects in finance, strategy, positioning or customer experience for local SMEs and international companies and then both independently started our own companies. Life was good but not meaningful enough. And as we always wanted to work together since high school, we decided to develop a business model with the prospect to do good.

Being passionate about travelling the world, studying and living abroad, learning languages, getting to know new people, leading entrepreneurial projects and supporting less privileged people, we have all the ingredients to start this new venture. We are very eager to get loquilove up and running to get people a perspective.

Partners

We are very thankful for our network of partners which assist us in our day-to-day business.

Foundations we support
With the donations generated through live tutoring, we support education projects of two very reliable and well respected Swiss partners:

  • HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation:
    "Primary school education and vocational training is vital for young people to take charge of their lives. Even today many children cannot go to school or drop out early. With your support, we provide these children and youth access to basic education and training modules tailored to local labour market requirements. Furthermore, we assist in training of teachers and developing adequate teaching materials. In all our activities, we aim for the inclusion of girls and women. Help these children and young people in building their self-determined future."
  • BPN - Business Professionals Network:
    "Promoting small business entrepreneurs – Wherever entrepreneurship flourishes, jobs are created, the economy prospers and the living conditions of the population are improved. Since 1999, the BPN Foundation has been supporting small entrepreneurs in developing countries with individual coaching, business education and loans for the purchase of production machines. By promoting «help for self-help», BPN empowers entrepreneurs to professionally build their companies and consequently to preserve and create jobs. BPN thus contributes to a sustainable economic development and opens new perspectives for people in their home country."
